This is a story about a nefarious group of people who have achieved top of the ladder success in their chosen career fields accompanied by significant growth in their net worth, yet they remain dissatisfied with their status in life. The root cause of this discontent is a psychotic longing for unrivaled power, to acquire the ability to command people to do their bidding willingly. They have become addicted to the benefits of power and will do anything to achieve it, including slander, libel, threats and even murder. These scheming malicious malcontents embark on a corrupt yet in many ways subtle quest to destroy the reputations of people they view as roadblocks to their goal of achieving their despotic goal, to convert the State of New York into their personal oligarchy without the general population having a clue as to what has occurred.
Things are going well for them until the Driscoll Detective Agency steps into the picture at the behest of the victims of these rumor mongers. Andy and Abbie Driscoll are private investigators who are very good at what they do and aren’t easily dissuaded no matter how rough and tough the going gets. Their resolve will be thoroughly tested as they take on the politically elite, a 21st Century version of robber barons, the Russian and Italian mafias and numerous contract killers.
The more involved the Driscolls become, the more deadly their situation becomes, requiring the clandestine assistance of undercover officers of the NYPD and the overt assistance of the FBI.
The Driscolls prove to be equally good as their adversaries when it comes to plotting, but if they’re not extremely careful they could wind up in a different kind of plot, one with flowers and a headstone.
As the story unfolds, you’ll be captivated by the combination of intrigue, suspense, violence, a
fair amount of humor and a touch of romance. Enjoy!
